BOOK REVIEW: Goodbye, Mr. Terupt

Goodbye, Mr. Terupt (Mr. Terupt #4) Rob Buyea December 1, 2020 Delacorte Press Oh my. Rob Buyea does it again.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, everyone! We won't be participating in any of the local MLK, Jr. events this year, because our daughter just tested positive for Covid-19. Pretty much the moment after the hospital called with her test results, the state health department called to quarantine our whole family until Monday, January 25th. … Continue reading It’s Monday!

We've had a fantastic Christmas holiday and have been snacking, playing games, and watching movies nonstop! We even had a nice dusting of snow two days before Christmas, so there was still a wee bit of white on the ground. I'm excited that my husband has another full week off work and our 17-year-old daughter … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/28/2020 #imwayr

Last week was a highly unusual one for our family, so I missed checking in with the #imwayr community. As the semester came to an end, I posted my students' grades on 12/9 and we quickly addressed and mailed out all our long-distance cards on the same day. Then over the weekend of the 12th, … Continue reading It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 12/21/2020 #imwayr
